Weather Wimp Crisis

floodingIt's a blustery rain storm.  In areas near streams and rivers, there will be traditional flooding.  Mud will slide.

KBC radio has been in emergency "storm watch" mode.  For much of this early morning they've been commercial free.  One of their reporters lost his personal SUV in flood waters and had to break out the rear window to escape drowning.  (Frightening story.)

The National Weather Service reported "GUSTS HAVE REACHED 68 MPH AT ANGEL ISLAND...51 MPH AT THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE...AND 47 MPH AT  SFO "
Our Noe Valley weather station peaked the wind at 39 mph a few minutes after 6 this morning. We've had 1.17 inches of rain since midnight.

But, how fortunate are we? 

Let's see.  Our wind is just about 100 mph less than the folks in the gulf dealt with.  And the rain totals, well, it's no contest.

I am grateful to be a weather wimp!
